I have AT&T and the reception is fine in all of Corolla. The only carrier I am aware of with poor coverage in the area is T-Mobile. If the guests want to check with their provider's coverage map, tell them to use the zip code 27927.

Are you asking about wireless hotspots? Most places seem to offer free wifi these days. There are two large shopping centers at the south end of Whalehead: Monteray Shores and TimBuck II. Everything will be open by the end of April, so just pick a coffee shop or restaurant and give it a try!

Verizon works fine up there. I think the area is totally covered there as well as the whole Outer Banks these days with very few exceptions.

We are Verizon customers - we had good coverage with our fellow travelers, but many calls and texts from the west coast (our home) were not reaching us. Our fellow travelers were from the NE and did not have that problem with calls/texts from home. Odd.
